Where can I buy an English copy of 'Endemic Cichlids of...'

Postby emartin » Sat Jan 03, 2009 1:22 pm

Where can I buy an English copy of 'The Endemic Cichlids of Madagascar' http://www.cichlidae.com/review.php?id=38

I'm having trouble finding sellers, and would preferably want to buy from a North American seller but if they are only available shipped overseas that will be fine.

So far I found these two sellers. The first one looks the most promising but is pricey for shipping (I calculated it to be approximately $90usd including shipping to USA):

http://www.stevensimpsonbooks.com/?page ... 1e5b3020b0

I was honestly surprised that I didn't find it available on ebay or aquabid... Not even on the French or UK ebay websites!

Thanks for the help,
~Ed

You can order it to the French Cichlid association :

Try Mike Shadle, in Chicago. I think he can be reached at mjschadle@comcast.net. I bet shipping would be cheaper than from Europe. :D

Shipping from Chicago would certainly be cheaper! Who is he though...? In other words, is he a reliable person to deal with? (Such as a fellow hobbyist with extra copies of the book, book seller, etc?).

I thought about it but I don't speak french and don't feel comfortable mailing in an order form overseas, and because I don't speak french it wouldn't make sense to call.

If they had a shopping cart system or an ebay or paypal account I definitely would consider ordering directly from them though...

You can pay with a credit card without any problem.
You can send a mail to Roland Staub (Email adress in the previous link) he 'll have no problem to translate from english.

Got a reply from Mike, said he sold out a long time ago and to check with a friend of his who owns Finley Aquatic Books. Now I am waiting for a reply from him, and if he doesn't have it I'll just email the French Cichlid Association website and get a quote from them and decide whether to purchase from them or the british website (total cost will determine who I choose).

Anyway thanks for the help everyone.

I ordered my copy through Email from Roland Staub at the French Cichlid Assn with a credit card, and the only thing I know in french is melange et tois (probably didn't even spell it right).
Great book.

I'm not getting a reply from Finley Books. I'll email the F.C.A. soon and get a price quote from them soon if I order from them.

Thanks for all the help everybody in locating this book for me!

I'm fairly certain that Lee does not have any now.
